You used to be able to restart a level as many times as you liked without losing a life to better set up the board, but no longer. I refuse to buy until it goes back.
I have the same problem! No answer yet!
I don't have the answer, but the back button brings up the play on or loose a life box on Android now even though you haven't made any moves. Has the reset a board option been removed? This will make me quit as I am almost on level 3000 and it is impossible to beat some levels without the reset board without losing a life option.
In fact, the costless restart should also apply on Soda.
*lose! Anyway, I was told on Twitter that it's a tweak made for the Mort's challenge. I have asked if the reset will be back after the challenge and have not received any answer yet.
It's obvious they are trying to increase revenue by making it harder, the more difficult it is, the quicker your 5 lives get used up. The quicker you run out of lives, the more likely you'll hit they buy button. Not me anymore. Also, you may have noticed simultaneously they reduced the piggybank max to 30 bars for $2.99, when you used to get 60. Coincidence? I think not.
No, not a coincidence especially when I read on another thread about this that it was an intentional change. Unless the complaints about it change their minds, bye Candy Crush. It's not worth my time to play for a few minutes when I can find another game to actually play.
Hey! Would you like to give us your opinion?
